Being Present and Intentional



I am compelled to share a bit of my journey since leaving 28+ years of secure employment. An anxious time just prior to leaving and following the decision. I will share however that I was surprised at how quickly things started to feel right. Here are some of the things that helped me get to a good place.


I read the book Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari. Harari goes through a brief history of mankind. This really provided me some perspective on what had to happen to get us (mankind) into our current situation. And it is very debatable as to whether or not some of the really big events added to our existence or took us away from a perhaps better place. He ponders about things like the first agricultural revolution  (between 10,000 BC and 2,000 BC) and whether or not we would be better off today had we remained hunters and gatherers. Certainly something I have never contemplated before reading the book.
